Green Buffalo Check Button-up

Added Jan 12, 2009

I made this shirt for my best friend Kyle, so this was a special one! Given that he has red-hair, I thought this green buffalo check fabric would look great on him. He’s pretty tall and a thinner guy so I’ve slimmed it down a fair bit. To my relief it fit him really well!! Note, my brother is modeling the shirt (right before I wrapped it up!). It was also the first time I used snap buttons, which ended up working brilliantly. In return, he got me a book on the history of Vogue so I have a lot of reading for the new year~

My brother Paul for last-minute modeling.

    the one thing when i look for mens shirts is fit, a good one will boost your figure and a bad one makes you look like a sloppy joe. and might i say, thats a really good fit on your brother. i’m surprised the green checks actually work out so well because i cant imagine using it in this context, so great job. im even more surprised your brother didn’t try to hijack it. haha!

    oh and have fun with your new book! the book has some seriously cool stuff in it, i refer to it all the time!
